Asked for pp and was willing to pay immediately.

Never heard a word back or any response to further messages.
Yup as a buyer I once waited 2 weeks to get a pp addy. By then I had already found something else. I did promptly letthe seller know. Which was more than the seller did for me. No they hadn't already found someone else to buy. They gave me their pp addy in their last pm prior to my saying I had found something else.

Re: Is this a joke?! Sales falling through!

I had a new member / first time mom to be contact me about something she didn't realize had sold. We started chatting a bit and she asked me what I thought were newborn essentials for wool, diapers, babywearing. . I typed her up a bunch of info and took the time to look up a lot of links and she never wrote back to say thanks or any sort of acknowledgment. Total waste of my time. Also, so tired of new people pming and offering ridiculously low offers!!

Yep, I don't sell a bunch but all I wish is that people are considerate enough to let me know one way or another. I'm not upset if someone changes their mind & tells me so. But we pretty much all know how little time you have when juggling family, work, school etc. So taking the time to gather info & pics is time I have to set aside from all of the other things I need to get done. Ugh! It can be so frustrating when you take time & someone isn't respectful enough to say yea or nay. I feel ya mama!!

On another note, I've had buyers contact me and ask me if they could buy something of mine in a week or so when they got paid. I don't mind this at all! If someone just keeps me updated/ communicates w/me it's fine. I'm never in a huge rush one way or the other. I just hate to be dragged along. Bleh

That's exactly why I stick to Spots' these days. Very rude, very frustrating.

I had this happen to me TWICE IN ONE DAY!!! One mom even told she decided to sell them to someone else! I was pissed. It sucked because I had passed on others waiting to freaking pay her!

Yup. This happened to me this week! Buyer and I had everything all set, ready to pay and then at the very last minute was $6 "short" than what we agreed upon. The diapers were priced at $3.75 for a diaper + insert. Couldn't believe it!
